More pics

,The house my bike burnt outside  W:T:F:, was a friend of a friend,... i didn't know they lived there, but the lady came out and gave us a much need drink, and she was very kind, to let me park the bike (which Coco and BE did for me, thanks guys  :-*)  on her garden until we sorted out the recovery, whilst there her little nephew turned up and loved my lid, so i ask him if he wanted to try it on..a big grin, .....we do have her permission to use the photo.

The car we were assisting pulled up at Blockbuster, I turned the bike off, but it wouldn't start again, I had to bump start it,  I got a new battery yesterday thinking that was my problem, but alas not...

Decided to meet for an afternoon schunt today.... :-ev-:

Its 11.40 so I nipped of to co-op to get a jar of coffee as i had run out, (it was for Javabike really  ;D) ...I noticed the bike was a bit sluggish and I thought here we go! not going to London tonight  :(... so I started taking the bike apart and Coco turns up  :aplude:( This chap, by the way, comes all the way from Northhampton to $chunt...simply amazing I think! ;D  :aplude: )....where was I ...oh... I checked that little wire that caused me not be able to attend Camley St the other week... it was fine..
Short time later, Marmite, :aplude: Javabike  :aplude: KillSwitch  :aplude: The Bald Eagle, DD, :aplude: had arrived, we had introductions, a cuppa, a chat, and then set off to the pen.. Were we met Rambo Chicken eagerly waiting for his schunt  :dancing: .. I nipped off to fill up and then back to the pen where Blinky had arrived woohoo 8 $chunters!
Theres only 1 $car in the pen, so me and BE went off to look for the other and Coco and Rambo C, went off in the other direction also to hunt,... about 5 Min's later DD calls in to say the other car is back at the pen! so we head back just in time,, to see off the others with the first Scar.... I said well we have at least 50 Min's before the other $car leaves... so we took our jackets off and had a drink....but eagle eye BE was carefully watching the pen and shouted, and noticed the Scar coming out :o.... ... there's no escape!!  :-ev-: and in seconds were assisting the $car  ;D
Happily staying in Gillingham all afternoon,,and assisting (apart from the schools) it seem like a really long  schunt and there was no time to tweet out. ....Its now coming up 5.00 and my bike is over heating, we have been riding for 3 hours with only a few stops, phew!! and suddenly the bike stalled and would not start, The other schunters stay with the scar, a little later Rambo pulls up to help, and then BE and Coco pull up with the Scar again :rotfl: they go off ..and a little later Rambo gives me a bump start  :aplude: and then has to go off to his appointments, I ring BE and catch up with them, (where are you BE? (BE) "I can see a big Chimney with a  top he says"  :rotfl: I knew where they were and found them a short while later, ........
We had just pulled up to Canterbury Street, and I see a little smoke and smell burning, but that is usual in Medway, a lovely warm day and some nut always starts a bonfire :pmsl:  well today it was me, (sorry about that)

 I stopped the bike and the smoke stops too, so we agree to go back to the pen, I only got twenty yards and the smokes back but a little heavier, we stopped and BE tipped some water over it and I thought that would be OK, he goes off and reappears with more water, but the fires started, thank goodness the fire brigade were very quick, as it may have been a little worst,
BE gives me a ride back home after we stuff all my gear into Cocos bike, Marmite and DD start laughing as we all did, had a cuppa and some headache tablets because i had a thumping headache by now.....A big thank you to everyone, and big thanks to Marmite and DD for helping to get my Bike back home for me,,  :aplude: :aplude:

onwards and upwards  ;D  :dancing: :dancing:

Im sure the other guys will add there reports and tell you about the day they had  ;D

Sooo, having got back from work at like 2am this morning after 2 weeks away, I read a text from MG - Mass $chunt in medway meet at pen at 1.30.. result, goddamn how i've missed $chunting and MG has arranged a nice $chunt the first day i'm available - nice one!

So i skip the offer off coffee in favor or an extra 30mins in bed (having been up for 23hrs the day before) and head to the pen after a quick fuel stop..

A cigarette and a few minutes later I hear the sound of engines and a convoy of $chunters ... and so the fun began..

Myself and Coco headed out to hunt, the plan being to head to blockbuster, through to dock road and to Gillingham... Then Coco receives a call saying we should head back to the pen .. (I later found a couple missed calls from DD and Bald E - alas i don't have hands free)...

After arriving back at the pen, I was told we would probably be waiting around 50mins.. but it seemed that the $camera cars wanted to play sooner so we scrambled like fighter jets in a WWII bombing raid (I stole that analogy off of someone, possibly BaldE)

So myself, MG, Coco and BE start assisting the car through a rather pleasant, albeit repetitive circuit of Gillngham, lots of support from the public which is nice. Myself and Coco had our picture taken near KFC ...
A little while later we're at a set of traffic lights and start to pull away, MG had turned off her ignition but as the lights changed, couldn't start up again... so we turn the corner (minus MG) and I slow down a bit checking my mirrors... no sign of MG.. and i start wondering if her bike has died for good... so leaving Coco and BE to follow the car (sorry guys, i know you're not familiar with the area) - I decide to head back to see if MG is ok (after all, no $chunter should be left behind!) - filtering up to the traffic lights, I see no sign of her .. maybe she got her bike started and has ridden off... but no, couple seconds later, there she is by the side of the road looking rather forlorn but masking it with the classic MG grin  ;D it seems her bike had over heated, so i wait with her for it to cool down, BE and Coco continue doing the $cam cam circuit and pass us again to check if MG is ok...

few mins later, tried to start her bike again but the battery is flat so it's time for a bump start - success!! At this point - unfortunately i have to shoot off.. so i say my good byes and wish MG a happy $chunt... and then tonight, i look at facebook and see her poor bike in flames! W:T:F: very sorry to hear about that- wish I could of stuck around to help in any way i could of done... (failing that, at the very least I could of lit a cig off of your bike seeing as my lighter isnt working any more lol  :rotfl: ) hope it gets sorted soon and you're not $chunting on foot for too long .. see you on the next one:)

I was in this schunt. Went round mg house. Had a nice chat with the family then was offerred a cold orange juice and then we went over to the pound. Was worth every penny seeing how the taxpayers money was being burnt. Couldnt stop laughing at the way the cars were going around in circles. Had to leave 3 ish to pick children up from school and as i was turning off Canterbury street saw mg and co assisting another car. By the time i had turned they had dissapeared. All in a schunters day.

@Tom Tom

I hope I speak for all of us when I repeat:

We all do whatever we can.

In a volunteer group, that is something I firmly believe in.

And I hope your boys are as ok as they can be under the circumstances.

@Coco,
The photo was taken outside the house where the bike caught fire, when the lady opened the door, It was a friend of a friend, although BE did ask me "Do you know everyone?"  :pmsl:, I didnt know she lived there!  she was very kind and gave us a drink and allowed us to leave the bike on her garden Just before the fire here little nephew had turned up and when all was calm, they came outside, and that where the pic happened  ;D

@MG: Sorry, I should have made it clear which photo I was referring to. It was the one taken outside the pen, in which you appear to have changed gender, your helmet and are wearing camo trousers. Could it be Rambo with Bingo?

(Once again my attempt at humour fails   :( )
